Developers prefer to create apps for the iPhone rather than Android. And ‘what emerges from a study of Flurry Analytics, a company specializing in conducting studies and analysis of the smartphone market. According to data referring to the previous month of January for every Android app developed it there are three iPhone. As far back as January of last year, the situation for the Google OS seems worse, given that 12 per three months ago they were developed two iPhone app for Android.
First let’s talk of an economic rationale in that it is easier to sell apps in the App Store than what you can do with the ‘ Android Market. Having tried both virtual markets, in fact, I have seen the differences and actually can not move more easily in the App Store than I do in the Android Market.
In addition there is the classic discourse of fragmentation of the operating system from Google . Since there are so many versions of Android installed on many different smartphones, it becomes difficult for developers to test their Android app for all operating systems for all phones and Google, as each phone has its own features, from the point of view hardware to him.
Considering that the latest mobile operating system from Google is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android version 4) but the most popular OS is Android 2.3, and that many smartphones are “powered by Android,” we understand how complex it is for developers create new apps for Android. From this point of view, Google will have to work hard.
